just thought that-- i thought michelle obama hit it out of the park glent contrast the rest of night. there were a lot of tough speech, harry reid, deval patrick. they came out to the jugular, and then michelle obama could fill in the rest of the gaps. >> you're electing someone, we're going to spend four more years with these people and after this speech, i think a lot of people will say, yeah, i think i. the one kavil-- >> the one what. >> i don't know if you used that word right. is the speech has reinforces something we've heard all night, which was how much the crowd goes crazy and how passionate they are about abortion and gay marriage and the social issues. and tonight has been about that. and to me it should have been a lot more about economics, growth, and debt. and that better be the job of day two and day three because they did not do it here. >> woodruff: mark, do you agree that's a mistake. >> i will say this, barack obama and the democrats have to come out of this convention with something on bowles-simpson, something that says this is how we're moving forward. this is

. the bottom line what i see is bill clinton gave a great speech. michelle obama gave a very personal and good speech for her husband. president obama is will give a wonderful speech tonight he is very good. and at the end of the day this is what happen what matters. monday we have the announcement that gas prices doubled and we have the highest labor in the country. and we have the highest deficit. when the speeches are done tonight tomorrow we will get the jobs report and it will show 43 months in a row over 8% unemployment. 23 million americans are out of work. at the end of the day, the speakers are nice and this is a serious election in serious times. and it comes down to whether or not president obama's policies have worked and when you look at the numbers by any real measure you have to say they have not worked. >> so the campaign seemed to be painting two different visions of america. based on perhaps similar experiences that people have undergone over the last couple of years. the romney campaign says perhaps are you not better off than you were four years ago and the obama campaign i

night i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states. and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. [ cheering and applause ] now folks, in tampa a few days ago we heard a lot of talk about how the president, the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government. how bad we are for the economy, this republican narrative, alternative universe says that everyone of us in this room who amounts to anything we're all completely self centered. one of the greatest chairman the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every vote tore believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but strauss admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way in to it with relentless focus on the future with business and government actually working together to promote growth. and br
